, a softening from his position on iran, there were back-channel talks between the united states and iran about talking about getting together. not yet agreed to by the ayatollah for iran, or from the united states, but the agreement of the diplomatic issues are a good thing, you may hear more rhetoric on benghazi and libya, but mitt romney wants to keep the focus on the economy and both candidates will talk about china quite a bit. china's impact on ohio, they're all looking towards voters in ohio, the battleground states. >> andrea mitchell. we don't have you home for long, given your world travel and view of the world right now, what is the most urgent and pressing issue that could come up tonight? one that will live well beyond the debates? well, i think afghanistan and troops, tens of thousands, that is very important. but the most pressing issue right now seems to be syria, the united states can no longer ignore that situation, a huge hole that is sucking in other countries. so far 30,000 people killed in syria, and it is clear that that conflict is a regional war with other countries bec
by our allies. i think the tension between israel and the united states was very unfortunate. i think also pulling our missile defense program out of poland and the way we did was also unfortunate in terms of, if you will, disrupting the relationship in some ways that existed between us. and then, of course, with regards to standing for our principles, when the students took to the streets in tehran and the people there protested, the green revolution occurred for the president to be silent, i thought, was an enormous mistake. we have to stand for our principles, stand for our allies, stand for a strong military and stand for a stronger economy. >> mr. president. >> america remains the one indispensable nation. and the world needs a strong america, and it is stronger now than when i came into office. because we ended the war in iraq, we were able to refocus our attention on not only the terrorist threat but also beginning a transition process in afghanistan. it also allowed us to refocus on alliances and relationships that had been neglected for a decade. and governor romney, our alli

. >> the united states military has begun strikes. >> reporter: at first -- >> one, two, three -- >> reporter: the -- the war had momentum. and a clear purpose. al qaeda with bases in afghanistan attacked the united states on 9/11. just three months later, the u.s. drove the taliban from power. al qaeda and osama bin laden were on the run. it was done with a few hundred cia officers, special forces, and air power. a quick victory. but not decisive. and then came the distraction of a new war, in iraq. the taliban regrouped, and the u.s. began a nation-building project that has been far less successful. the government washington helped put in place is widely considered corrupt. president karzai is supposed to be out by 2015. but afghans don't believe it. the war has brought some benefits to afghans. 3 million girls now go to school. that was banned under the taliban. better health care and new clinics have boosted life expectancies by as much as 22 years. but those gains could temporary. if the villagers in shakar dhara are right and the afghan government can't hold the country together, the ta

to be president of the united states of america. at a time when people are craving authenticity, i think joe biden delivered for the president. i think he activated the democratic base. and i think you'll see it in this week's numbers. >> governor, what do you think we learned about paul ryan? >> well, let me first say joe biden is authentic. and last week he said two important things to every voter. one, that the middle class has been buried during the last four years. of course, he's been in charge the last four years. number two, that absolutely obama and biden are going to raise your taxes about $2 trillion over the next four years. so what i would say is what we learned about paul ryan is he is thoughtful, he understands the budget better than anybody else, and that the top issue facing the country isn't bain capital, isn't mitt romney's tax returns, it isn't big bird, it's how to get the greatest country on earth out of debt and back to work. and when you look at 23 million americans unemployed, $16 trillion in debt, doubling gas prices, no coherent energy strategy, it's clear to me that the
.s. officials say iran has agreed to nuclear talks. the united states and iran have agreed in principle for the first time to one-on-one negotiations over iran's nuclear program, according to obama administration officials, setting the stage for what could be a last-ditch diplomat effort to avoid a military strike on iran. it's been suggested that the talks wait until after the presidential election. but a senior administration official said telling their american counterparts they want to know with whom they would be negotiating. what is your reaction to this? >> well, my reaction is the white house has denied it, so i don't think there's much more to talk about. they denied that. obviously, war is always the last option. no one wants a war. we would hope this could get solved in another way. i think the military option has to be on the table, and both candidates have said that. and i think there is also concern. and i'm not talking about this story but just in general that iran has often used negotiations in the past to buy themselves time. but the white house is denying that story th

. >> reporter: good morning, chris. as we see our gas prices in the united states rising, the election here in oil-rich venezuela takes on importance. at 6:00 a.m. the polls opened here and in this country, which is about twice the size of california, it's expected there will be a 90% voter turnout today. venezuela is the fourth largest supplier of oil to the united states. and this country has the largest oil reserves in the world. how different are things here because of that? pull into a gas station in venezuela and it takes less than $3 to fill up an empty suv. but oil production in venezuela has dropped 30% in the last decade, which is one reason for hour higher gas prices. oil industry experts in the united states say president hugo chavez, who's been no friend of the united states, has failed to invest in the oil industry that he nationalized in the early 2000s. challenging chavez is 40-year-old enrique. he's thin, energetic and some say the sexy candidate. a sign that folks here feel the vote could be close and perhaps contested. grocery stores have been mobbed as if residents are p

the program of every single disapointing piece of chinese data. or we can recognize that the united states is starting to become the more dominant market on the earth. today is the perfect example. we woke up to news that once again, some data point from china showed a further decline and that clearly faltered the economy. then that negativity was tossed to europe. will spain take the bailout or not? it's the european spinoff of deal or no deal. by the time we get to our market, i saw this morning at 4:00 a.m., we were looking down substantially. eight of us on world bank survey. i have to admit that when i heard the litany, my first reaction was, oh, here we go again. get ready to baton down the hatches because of the chinese slow down and the european stalemate. i tweeted just that at 4:15. i said here we go again, get ready. but the more i thought about it, the more i realized, are you kidding me? this again? these two headlines? are they even headlines? when they were first in the news, they were clearly disruptive forces, just terrorizing. they stayed that way for many, many months. b
do that by appointing preet bharara as attorney general of the united states of america and have him go after all of these insider traders and crooks that populate the banks. they should be indicted, not need to settle where they can pay the government in money funded by the shareholders rather than the wrongdoers. at the same time, presidential candidate interested in higher stock prices should vow to bring back arthur leavitt. the best sec chair we've ever had so the playing field could be leveled and all the ridiculous financial engineering including elimination of the uptick rule should be rolled back tomorrow. third, i would say from the first day in office, i demand that all federal vehicles be retrofitted to run on natural gas engines to clean up the skies and hire hundreds of thousands of americans to build up the infrastructure to handle the federal vehicles. that would force the hand of the trucking companies to switch from dirty, expensive imported diesel and cause gasoline to go down in price for all of us. because of the liquefied natural gas competition. we need to star
. and as of this morning, courtney, both sides, the united states and the iranian government, are denying a report in "the new york times" that they have agreed to sit down one-on-one after the u.s. elections and discuss iran's nuclear program. of course, that program has been a source of tension not only to the united states and iran and the rest of the world and iran for that matter but also between the united states and israel. you remember benjamin netanyahu, the prime minister with the united nations just a couple of weeks ago, drew that famous red line, urging the united states to get tougher with iran. but all parties agree on one thing. iran must not be allowed to develop a nuclear weapon. they are processing uranium right now. it is not yet weapons grade. two weeks before an election, the day before the eve of that foreign policy debate, that news would have been a blockbuster but a white house spokesman says sanctions are working. while the white house is willing to sit down one-on-one with iran, no such agreement has been reached at this point, courtney. >> mike, thank you. >>> autumn gasoline
